QA Sheriff Requests Recovery Act Grant

“On February 17, 2009, President Obama signed into law the landmark American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (the Recovery Act””). As one of its many elements, the Recovery Act provides the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) with funding for grants to assist state, local, and tribal law enforcement (including support for hiring), to combat violence against women, to fight internet crimes against children, to improve the functioning of the criminal justice system, to assist victims of crime, and to support youth mentoring. DOJ is committed to working with our national, state, local and tribal partners to ensure this funding invests in the American workforce.

Specifically, the Bureau of Justice Assistance will be making awards to assist local and tribal efforts to prevent or reduce crime and violence. The Sheriff’s Office grant application is requesting $35,000 assistance for Queen Anne’s County.”
